My darling son, Brock, has been saying his belly hurts for a couple of days. Usually after a trip to the potty, he feels better. Last night he would not eat his dinner, but that is typical on a raining Saturday after a day of snacking. Around 8:30 pm (bedtime is at 8pm), I heard a strange crying and he was standing in the hall next to my newly painted and cleaned bathroom. Bless his little heart, he had tried to make it to the potty to vomit, but this was the ONE TIME the lid was down... and he made it, but the lid was down. UGH!
I quickly rallied daddy to take him (he wanted to wash out his mouth) as I began cleaning and sanitizing the bathroom. I guess those twizzlers he had during his video were not meant to stay down. Of course the ENTIRE time I am cleaning, I am holding back my own gags. After the clean up and sanitizing stint, I sat with him praising him for making it into the bathroom (instead of his bed). He wanted to go lie down in his bed. Before I left him, my husband and I laid our hands on his tummy and prayed for healing. He smiled and closed his eyes and was fast asleep. How amazing that our Lord can bring such peace to a sick little 5 year old. Hubby stayed with him for a little while but he never moved. I am sure it takes a lot out of them.
I am so blessed!!! I think this is the first time my son has thrown up and my daughter has only thrown up twice: at 6 months and then around 3 yrs old (she is almost 7 now). We spent the rest of the night with small trips to the potty and now he is famished. I told him he needed to eat slow and only drink water. He said, "Why can't I eat fast!" Usually, we spend the entire meal begging him to keep eating - too busy talking - and now he wants to eat fast. I made him scrabbled eggs... so I pray that this stays down.
I think we will spend this Sunday inside and we will all eat the BRAT diet in case we get whatever this was... and I just remembered - SPRING FORWARD! I am already a hour behind... did you remember?
